Spring is on its way and the new arrivals at French Connection Home look at fresh, textural and natural pieces which make the ideal designer beach house look ready for the warmer weather.

With the industrial interior design trend has come a large amount of lighting designs based upon the simple light bulb. Following on from the Lee Broom post with his decorative, intricate lighting based upon the light bulb, I have found lighting designs with a more naive style to them yet still transform the simple light bulb in a contemporary and great way.

This trend for industrial styled items has been around for a while, however, it is still dominating interior stores so thought I would show you my favourite industrial pieces for the home.

This style falls under the major current utilitarian trend for its stripped back appeal and functional, non- decorative characteristics and follows on nicely to my previous trend post. For example, image no. 1 which combines reclaimed timber and metal for a more edgy look, bringing the craftsmanship and raw materials from my previous trend post, together with industrial materials.

This trend is all about taking something of an old industrial piece and revamping it or in some cases, pieces are just made to look in that industrial way – my personal favourite – Original BTC. (

I feel this industrial look would best suit a kitchen as it is a space for functionality and practicality. This trend adds sophistication to functionality and would be ideal for creating a casual, contemporary interior.
